Another sailing vessel crossed our bows from east to west at sunrise – seemed bigger, may have had 2 masts, new sails and faster. I think this is the first time we have seen another sail anywhere out of sight of land since 2005. I'm a bit surprised that there aren't any more around here, though it's getting to be the end of the season for crossing the Atlantic by the classic route from the Cape Verdes to the Antilles.

Yesterday's moth – perfect camouflage perhaps for the Western Sahara, only about 200 miles upwind. I wonder if it's still there?
